I love fashion magazines and purchase many throughout the year. My favourites are British Vogue and In Style, American Glamour, Lucky, Allure and Elle. The main reason I purchase them is to check out upcoming trends and designer collections. I also enjoy taking in the advertising.

My own style is very seldom inspired by the outfits I see in magazines. To date I have never cut out tried to recreate a look that I saw in a magazine. But I am inspired by upcoming trends and designer collections because I’m hungry for new stuff and excited to know in which direction fashion is heading. Designer collections often showcase new trends through their ads and it’s fun to watch them trickle down to retail level.

Do you purchase fashion magazines and are you inspired by their content? If so, how do they inspire you?
